Phua Chu Kang Fans Gathering

"I'm best in Singapore and JB. And some says Batam." If you have watched 1 or 2 episodes of Singapore's most popular English sitcom you would have known that familiar phrase which is spoken by the lead character of that famous sitcom, Phua Chu Kang (PCK).

After ending the long running sitcom (up to 10 seasons) in Singapore. Phua Chu Kang and his wife Rosie also made Phua Chu Kang Sdn Bhd, where the story will be shifted to Malaysia instead of Singapore. That lasted about 2 seasons. Now, the much awaited Phua Chu Kang movie will be shown or Don't Play Play In Cinema 26th of August.

Frequent cinema goers would have watched this Phua Chu Kang Movie teaser that reminds patrons to switch off their hand phone.

Last week, thanks to Nippon Paint Malaysia and Nuffnang, I got to go to the PCK Fans Gathering held in Rizt-Carlton Hotel, Bukit Bintang, Kuala Lumpur. I invited Zoe along as she'll be going back to Canada for good soon. She is so nice to treat me birthday cakes at The Loaf. My first and only birthday cake this year. Thank you Zoe.

Yuenny and Jackie from Nuffnang and Churp Churp were there to give the passes to us.

Before meeting PCK, we took pic with Nippon Paint's mascot

The MCs of the evening are the radio DJ Serena C of Mix FM and DJ Royce Tan of MY FM. That's Hooi Nee by the way. Royce is so cool. I took pic with them too but not from my camera. I forgot who took the pic already, damn.

Not long after that, the two actors and an actress of PCK Movie came in with the fans applauding. Gurmit Singh (Phua Chu Kang), Ireng Ang (Rosie) and Henry Thia (Lim Lau Peh). They were so into character once they were up on stage. Gurmit Singh didn't dressed up as his character because he is recovering from his Dengue fever. The doctor advised him not to dressed up as PCK because he tends to go hyper mode once he's in the costume.

There is this small girl that dresses up like Phua Chu Kang. Gurmit is so happy to meet her. Check out the video of this cute little PCK.

Jason, Michelle and I were joined as a one of the two team to act out a scene. We did our best but we lose out to a very old Rosie (an old man portraying her), a kid as PCK and an uncle as Lim Lau Peh. We did get some consolation prizes.

The fun doesn't stop there. The three stars took group picture with all the fans and autographed the movie poster for each of the fan that was there. So nice of them.

The other bloggers that were there are Coco, Suresh, Tian Chad, Yi Wern, Joshua, Rebecca, Feeq and Wilson. Sorry, if I missed out anyone. It was a fun gathering. Too bad no food but we have free flow of yummy Ho Yan Ho canned herbal jelly tea.
